Beautiful April day in Beijing. Walked down from Jingshan Park, across the road and into Beihai. Nice stroll along the lake. Don't miss the Nine Dragon Wall. It is the highlight of the park. Ask directions to find it as it is not signed very well within the park.

The pandas were the highlight and one even woke up long enough to put in an appearance for use to see movement and antics that one associates with this animal. The zoo, itself wasn't the grand attraction I had hoped to see and the cages were detrimental to viewing the animals.

A short walk west of the north entrance of the Palace Museum. We took a short cut through a more modern hutong to enter the park. It's a favourite for locals and visitors alike and when we were there it was quite peaceful, surrounded by one of Beijing's lovely lakes. It's a bit of a climb up to the white... More

Yet another beautiful Beijing park. I find it strange though that a fee is charged to enter 'public parks', but hey that is just another one of those Chinese things, and the fee is minimal. Lovely views of the gleaming white Tibetan pagoda/ chorten on the hill. I was too exhausted to attempt the climb, but next time I will.... More

It's located in the middle of the crowded Beijing. It's really nice to have some tranquility there. The park is huge so just enjoy yourself while you're there

We walked from Tisn an Men square up the west side of the Gugong to Beihei Park. Floral sculpture was beautiful even in November when many activities and concessions were closed. Citizens were dancing as seen earlier at TianTan. Red prayer tiles were hung from trees. We worked our way up to the great Dagobah for an outstanding view despite... More

Spent a couple of hours walking round the park in the sunshine. We only paid the basic 10RMB so never went to the jade isle but there was loads to see and lots of beautiful pictures were taken. Great place to relax so close to city centre.

This park is located right at the north-west exit of the Forbidden city, so very close to the center of the city. It is a lovely place to spend half a day or even less. I paid something around 20 RMB to get into it and have a look at the temples inside the little island in the center of... More

A bit of nature as a respite from the bustle of Beijing. There were many groups of people doing line-dancing, or sitting in the pavilions and singing in huge choirs. A good view from the top of the stupa Island - needs a separate ticket to get to.

I visited on a beautiful spring Sunday and the park was full of locals and tourists of all ages. Boats out on the lake, tour groups and families, older adults doing exercise and painting Chinese calligraphy with huge brushes, and the lovely Jade Islet with its stunning Tibetan temple on top of the hill - a great way to spend...
